Second hit in Google, if you looked:
http://geeknushallfind.blogspot.com/...uxunbuntu.html

It lists the packages you need to install, and how to do it. Process should be the same on Mint.

I only have one ubuntu (mint / gnome) system, but if you install xCHM you can open the .chm file and then Print it to .ps (postscript) or install a 'print to pdf' app.. (in SuSE (openSuSE) / KDE i use cups).
open the .ps file in your pdf reader and either print to or 'save copy as' *.pdf.
if you can install or have installed a 'print to pdf' app, you're done after opening in xCHM and 'printing'...

hope this helps.
Landis.
